The World Series. The Kentucky Derby. Wimbledon. Few sporting events can simultaneously conjure up feelings of tradition, grandeur, and immortality. In the tennis world, the 147-year-old Wimbledon Championships is as prestigious as it gets. This year's event, played as always by all-white-wearing competitors on outdoor grass courts, is sure to add another exciting chapter to the tennis history book. It's time to learn how to watch Wimbledon in 2024, which is held from July 1 to July 14.




It's no secret that tennis has entered a new era, now that long-dominant superstars like Serena Williams and Roger Federer have retired their rackets. Last year, rising star Carlos Alcaraz famously upset Novak Djokovic to capture the men's title, while 24-year-old Markéta Vondroušová bested all other women competitors. Can they repeat last year's feat or will other newcomers begin their long marches towards greatness? At Wimbledon, every match feels like sudden death and anything could happen.

The once-retired Ashleigh Barty surprised the tennis world by announcing she'd return to Wimbledon to participate in a doubles match. Rafael Nadal will miss this year's tournament to focus on the upcoming summer Olympics in Paris. Novak Djokovic, last year's runner-up for the men's title, was reportedly pushing hard to get to this year's tournament, but was unsure if he'd make it. As always, one never quite knows just who will step out on the grass court.

To catch all the unpredictable yet elegant action of the 2024 Wimbledon Championships, stay glued to ESPN and the Tennis Channel, which will be covering all the latest news and matches in the U.S. throughout the first two weeks of July.
